“The time has come for us to put down the protest signs and pick up the campaign signs” says Amy Kremer of the Tea Party Express.
Apparently Sarah Palin agrees. Yesterday Sarah Palin officially endorsed Christine O’Donnell for Delaware Senate on Sean Hannity’s show. Hannity tweeted about the incident after the show.
It also seems the RNC (Republican National Committee) agrees and is ready to pick up campaign signs… for Mike Castle. The RNC has allegedly been making “robo-calls” to voters in Delaware informing people of Castle’s fiscal conservatism. Many already frustrated Delawareans are now becoming angry. They are attempting to call the RNC office today and let them know that Delaware is tired of their establishment candidate (202-863-8500).
O’Donnell’s campaign, still most likely reeling from their unexpected Palin endorsement discussed Palin’s words (spoken and written). Palin had the following to say about O’Donnell: “The wave of positive change can really sweep across our land with the election of Constitutional Conservatives who promise to use common sense and rein in the federal government spending! Please support Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. She will support efforts for America’s energy security, patient-centered health care reform, cutting government waste, and letting the private sector thrive and prosper! We can’t afford “more of the same” in Washington. Christine will help usher in the real change we need to get America on the right track. Please visit her website at www.christine2010.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.”
The Delaware GOP’s response? Tom Ross (who claimed that “she could not be elected dog catcher,”) strangely enough has filed a FEC complaint against O’Donnell pointing to the Tea Party Express and claiming there is illegal activity. Strangely enough Tom Ross may also be heard on NPR (National Public Radio) discussing the O’Donnell and Castle race. One may find it interesting that Tom Ross “Tom Russ explains why candidate Mike Castle is right for the job” on a known Democrat station. Ross points to the number of people who attended a single O’Donnell rally “they had 50 people to rally for a United States Senate candidate”. Mike Castle certainly has more people than that when he shows up in Sussex County, but that may be because he refuses to have any pre-announced rallies in the fear that he may have to account for his voting record.
The Tea Party Express is holding a rally tonight in Sussex County. The 9-12 Delaware Patriots sent out some of the rally information:
“Sussex County – Friday, Sept 10th at 5:30 pm – American Legion Post #28, 3178 Legion Road, Millsboro.
Guest Speakers and Musical Stars:
Tea Party Musical Stars Lloyd Marcus, Rivoli Review and Diana Nagy as well as special guest speakers to include Tea Party Express Chairman, Amy Kremer and Gold Star mom, Debbie Lee.
The 9-12 Delaware Patriots along with other grass roots organizations and candidates will have a booth set up at both rallies. We will have tents set up for shade, please bring your chairs.
Candidates are invited to come and interact with the citizens of Delaware by setting up booths at the Mall. No RSVP is needed.”
Maybe Tom Ross is right and only 50 people will show up here as well… One hopes he is proven wrong. Of course, one life-long Republican state the following to myself and his friends:
” I gave notice to the Delaware GOP, I am dropping them after the Primary’s. I have to get my vote in for Christine O’Donnell. 38 years a Republican, now it is time I become an Independent.
I will not vote for any GOP backed person in Delaware.
Mike Castle, Michele Rollins, Tom Wagner and Colin Bonini.
Pass the word, we are sick of the good old boy network.
